February is Black History Month
In 2023, several Black-led organizations in Hamilton worked together to support the City of Hamilton in launching its first official Black History Month Celebration under the theme We Are Hamilton - Black History Remembered. Through this initiative, images and biographies of 16 Black Hamiltonians were profiled. This year, Hamilton’s 17th honouree will be unveiled as part of this initiative.
